Welcome to My Personal Page

I have joined the fight against pancreatic cancer by volunteering with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN).  Through their nationwide Purplestride events, they raise money and awareness to promote research, clinical initiatives, and advocacy in order to improve patient outcomes.   

Purplestride Tennessee 2022 will now be part of a nationwide event, with all 59 affiliates across the U.S. uniting on April 30 to promote fundraising for PanCAN.  With its new date and a new location at Two Rivers Park, Purplestride 2022 promises to generate even more enthusiasm and support behind our efforts to find an end to this disease.  

Purple ribbons aren't enough --  please join me for Purplestride Tennessee 2022 and let's take steps together to end pancreatic cancer!

About PanCAN's PurpleStride

The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s (PanCAN) PurpleStride is a year-round national movement that funds life-changing programs and services to accelerate progress for pancreatic cancer patients.

On one powerful day through nearly 60 PurpleStride events nationwide, pancreatic cancer survivors, families, caregivers, researchers and supporters will join together to honor everyone affected by the disease.
